I have some Bohning white gasket lacquer. Once it's dry, will a water borne clear finish be ok over it? I'm thinking once the white is dry, it shouldn't matter but I need to be sure before I ruin some good arrows.

The reason I ask is I put some of that really thick Flex Seal on my basement wall and it was black. Because I didn't want the wall to be black, I applied some latex water proof paint that I already had. When I applied it, the white like honeycombed and it was like a black and white honeycomb. I had to go over the whole thing repeatedly until the white finally covered the wall. What a huge job. I didn't know it would do that.

Most any finish will go over lacquer and not orange-peal, however I have never liked gasket lacquer on wood arrows because it never becomes part of the shaft it just lays on top of it. When the finish is scratched moisture will get under it and it will peal off the shaft like pealing a banana. Always do a test when combining different finishes to see if they are compatible.

I’ve been happy with the finish True North Arrows sells. They sell it in just about every color.

Bob,
I've never used it before. A quart or white and a quart of red was given to me so I thought I might as well try it. Can I put any kind of primer type of thing on the bare wood first that might prevent that?
I have some short practice shafts that I can test to be sure if I do decide to use it.

Since I have them, I think I'll put if on some backyard arrows to see how it holds up anyway.

I like his stuff too but it's out of my price range for the amount you get.

IMO if you want to do a primer it has to be a Laq. Like Bob said, you can put other finishes over Laq but not the other way around. They used to sell a “sanding sealer” that was Laq based. I used it in wood shop when we used to spray Laquer on our projects. It might be hard to find these days, that stuff isn’t EPA friendly. 

  But take Bob’s advice. Try a test first.

If I understand your question about painting over Flex Seal, with your white Gasket Lacquer, don't, they are not compatible.  I would go to your favorite hardware, Home Depot, or paint store and get the right product. If you have the Flex-Seal can, call or email that company.

I do not think the clear Gasket Lacquer is need, unless it is intended to go on the wood below the cap dip, and/or over cresting. I agree with Darren and Bob.

Hud,
Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to point out that on my wall, I tried to paint a water based product over a petroleum based product and it wasn't working.

So I was trying to find out if I put a water borne acrylic clear coat over Bohning's white gasket lacquer, if I would encounter the same problem of the acrylic not wanting to cover the lacquer properly.

I have short practice shafts that I am going to test it out on before I make any arrows.
